The intention of the project ‘A Model’ is to envision is a democratic, humane and lively architecture - a new type of urban housing, which can accommodate the dreams of the inhabitants today, tomorrow and for many years to come. The project ‘A Model’ addresses this challenge by learning from people’s own way of building.
The program suggest how architects can transfer these principles to new urban housing designs. The building hosts public functions such as a cinema, library, restaurant, gardens, terraces and party facilities on the roof top. The spacious public staircase acts as a connecting element between these public functions and the family homes, artist studios, and homes for the elderly, which form the private life of the building unit.
The project suggests a new kind of building, where the realisation and evolution of the building occurs in an ad-hoc and constant dialogue.
